However... the more I've been reading about all the authors who are now connecting this way, the more I began to feel left out. Since many of the RNA members are already onboard, as well as some of my writing friends, I knew I'd find enough people to follow who might begin to follow me. So I took the plunge yesterday - and was overwhelmed with all these tweets I started getting! But it was mainly from the people I knew, and who I was now following.
It's interesting so far. I have no idea yet how to make the most of it, but I'll learn as I go, especially when I have a couple of good friends to advise me on the way. One thing I do like is the fact you can't write any more than 140 character messages - I enjoy being that concise, although it's also a challenge. The first thing I did was to download the free Tweet Deck for the desktop, as that will organise the tweets in the way you want them and it does help.
So, I'll keep you posted as to how it goes and report back if it's really worth it. Meantime, if anyone wants to follow me I'm @RosemaryGemmell - and please let me know yours if you're way ahead of me!
